Treadmill Tips

When the weather changes (for the worse), the treadmills at JCC Total Fitness are a great option for maintaining your fitness.

  • Spend a few minutes getting used to the machine.  Change speeds, while keeping track of where you are on the belt.
  • Always know where the emergency-off button is to stop the belt.
  • Start with an easy walk (about 3 mph) for one to three minutes.
  • Gradually pick up the pace for another one to three minutes.
  • Then increase to a run.
  • If you struggle to keep up, slow the belt down.
